Thank you so much, Jina! I've got some brown discharge today.. I did since last night but I am feeling so much better about it.. I feel different and I called my doctor and they said I could go in or not. I'm going to wait and see how the day goes and I'll call them later depending on how I feel. I just feel things will be ok. I still feel pregnant.
Alissa, I hope you had an amazing time in Manitou Springs and with the family dinner!
Jessica, ((HUGS)) I'm sorry about having to stay at the store you don't like for another week. I hope next week passes quickly for you!
I've found that my placenta is usually around 120 - 130 bpm and it sounds like a wooshing sound. The baby's h/b will either sound like horses or a train. Mine always sounded like a train. I also found that from 9 - 11/12 weeks the baby was right near the placenta. Make sure you are looking REALLY low. The uterus is still inside your pubic cavity. So, point the wand angled in towards your pubic cavity right at or below your hair line. Start in the middle and very slowly look to the right and left a few inches. Good luck! I hope you find the h/b soon. Oh and once I found it it was very easy for me to find it every single time. I used it daily from 9-18 weeks.
Wow, I'm so sorry tp hear about your vendor's wife. That's so sad.
Nidia, Sorry about the brown discharge but it's probably old blood from the implantation. I'm glad you're feeling good and keep thinking positive thoughts! Have you set up your first appointment yet?
Nidia!!! Congrats on your pregnancy and I'm so happy that you are joining us! I wish you a very HH9Ms. I can only imagine how disappointing a CP is, but I'm so happy that you got your BFP again this month, and have everything crossed for you that this will be your sticky take home bean. Sorry that you are having brown spotting. Everything I've read says that brown is okay, but I completely completely understand how ANY spotting can be so scary, especially after a loss. Hoping it dies down really quickly, and you can settle in for a totally easy and stress free pregnancy from here on out.
Jessica - How sad about your vendor's wife. That seriously enrages me when I hear about insurance companies that won't pay for things that by all rights should be considered neccessities. I mean seriously, a shot to prevent pre-mature labor - how much more necessary can it be? Hoping that the labor stops on it's own, and she is able to carry the baby to the point where it will be okay. My mom had my brother at 7 1/2 months (and that was almost 30 years ago!) and he is fine, but there is a LOT of time between 4 months and 7 1/2. I hope that everything ends up okay.
Jina - How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
AFM - We had a good time in Manitou Springs! T LOOOOOOOVED Santa's Workshop - the rides were perfect for a kid his size. I was able to ride most of them because they were pretty tame, but my mom took him on the ones that I didn't feel I should ride, so it worked out perfectly. The only thing was, I think I overdid it a little bit walking all day all over that mountain side, because the next day (Sunday) I had a tiny bit of pale pink spotting (ruined my streak!!! That would have been Day 9!) It was just a tiny tiny bit, and very pale pink, but after 8 days of no spotting I was pretty disappointed to have any spotting at all. Oh well, note to self to take it easier.
Oh my gosh though, the room at the bed and breakfast had the funniest thing! In the pictures posted online, you can see a teepee looking thing in the corner of the main bedroom. When we first walked in, we thought it was just for decoration, and I was even thinking that depending on if anything was in there, T might have fun sitting in there and pretending to be an indian. Then we walked into our tiny little bathroom, and realized that it was so tiny, it didn't have a toilet! It was just a sink, a counter, and a shower! You guessed it...the toilet was in the teepee in the corner of the bedroom!!!! LMAO!!!! Noooooo privacy. LOL Good thing we are family; I would feel weird peeing in there if we had been staying there with friends or something. It reminded me of those shows that show apartments in NY so tiny that the toilet and bathtub are in the kitchen. LOL!
Ooh, I was mad yesterday night though. We went to DH's aunt and uncles' house for Rosh Hoshannah, and T was a freaking MONSTER. I think he was overtired or something, and when little kids are overtired, they go nuts, like actually way more wired than if they aren't tired. He could NOT sit still, calm down, eat dinner, et cetera, so I was already tired from dealing with that, and then my MIL basically ignored me trying to get T to sit and play quietly and was encouraging him to run laps in the house, which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place because I didn't want him to break anything. And don't just ignore me and over ride me to my kid! Not cool!!! So then, I was complaining to DH about it, and he started defending her and trying to explain that maybe if T ran laps it would work out the extra energy and then he could be more calm, and I was getting soooo mad, because it's like "That's not the point, the point is that he's my kid and if I tell him to stop running, you don't just over ride me and tell him to run laps!" I finally burst into tears and basically refused to talk to DH for the rest of the night. Pregnancy hormones + being tired + being annoyed = big fun for everyone involved. LOL Oh well, I am better today, although I still think I was right about MIL being in the wrong. LOL
Alissa, I'm glad T had so much fun at Santa's Workshop! It sounds like you and your mom had fun riding the rides too. Sorry about the spotting, though. I agree, I'm sure it was just due to walking so much. LOl about the teepee toilet! OMGosh! How weird! The room in the pic looked to be a good size.
Awww....I'm sorry you had a bad night last night. I'm sure it was not a fun night for you at all. I agree about your MIL or anyone else for that matter shouldn't ever go over the parents' head. That was not cool. I'm sorry you cried....I cried the other day too. M and I were in bed trying to go to sleep and I was watching TV like we always do before falling asleep. I was watching a documentary and it was in Japanese. Well, M got really irritated (he was exhausted and had to get up really early for a meeting the next day but I didn't know at the time) and instead of just asking me to turn it down or watch something different, he sat up and said what makes you think I can fall asleep when you're watching this crap?! Or something like that. Anyway, I was stunned because he NEVER snaps at me. I just turned everything off and went to the living room to watch tv out there and ended up falling asleep on the couch. Anyway, the next day I refused to talk to M and I bawled and bawled after he apologized. LOL Stupid pregnancy hormones!
Anyway, I'm glad you're having a better day today! ((hugs))
AFM, My weekend was pretty good. It rained all weekend so I was very happy! We pretty much just shopped and hung out. It was a very relaxing weekend.
I was in pain most of the weekend. My lower abdomen is sore. I heard it's normal but ouch! BUT, the lower ab pain is nothing compared to the tail bone pain I've been having. Holy cr@p! I could barely walk yesterday. The pain was pretty intense. It almost felt like I pinched a nerve or something. I really hope the pain doesn't get any worse because Tylenol did nothing to ease the pain. Though, I am feeling a little better today but the pain is still there. Boo!
Jina, I can so see me reacting the same way if DH snapped at me that way, especially right now when I am overly emotional anyway. I had myself worked up pretty good last night like "And you're going to sit there and defend someone who just disrespected me...." LMAO under normal circumstances I wouldn't throw around the word "disrespect" so lightly, but that's how I started feeling especially after he started defending her - like the more he defended her, the worse her "crime" got in my mind. LMAO
I'm sorry that you have been in pain! Have you asked your doctor if there is anything else you can take/do that might help?
Jina, I totally would have cried if DH had snapped at me like that too. I did cry yesterday, but I'll get to that. I hope your pain isn't anything lasting. Love your cute baby bump!
Alissa, glad you had a good time. That's too funny about the toilet!! And YES I totally agree with you about MIL overstepping boundaries. It personally irks me when people try to step in to other people's business, especially dealing with your kids. I've had custody of my brother for years and years and when he was little, it used to really make me mad when people would tell me to do something different or over ride something I had said to him. Actually, it still makes me mad and he's 20! lol
You're gonna be TWELVE WEEKS TOMORROW!
AFM, My weekend went to $hit last night. DH called me at 11am, talking like he was in a hurry. He said his mom wanted to know if he wanted to come for dinner. I said sure, I feel okay today. He said okay it'll be around 5, I said okay. Then he hung up. I mumbled something about love you too, rolled my eyes and put my phone up. I headed to the mall to meet a friend (which DH KNEW ABOUT, he told me to have fun). At about 330 I headed back, figured I'd just stop at MILs house because my house was farther away and there's no sense in backtracking. DH got off work at 330. He should have been there around 415. At 5 he calls me sounding really pissed. Him, "Where are you?" Me, "At your moms." "Him, "Well I've been home since 12, you could have told me you were heading over there." I sat in silence for a minute.. Him, "Whatever, I'm not coming now, it's raining, you eat. Bye."
Greeeeeaaaaat! So, I told his mom that he wasn't coming, got the plates "to go" and went home. The whole way home I was deciding what was going to happen. Either I could walk in like a bi*** or be all sweet and act like nothing was wrong. Well, MIL has cats. I am WAY allergic to cats and my asthma was really really messing with me. He walked out onto the porch when I got home and saw me struggling to breathe. He took the food, said he was sorry, set me up a breathing treatment and walked back out.
He better be glad he was sweet. I was about ready to karate chop him. He said later when he called me at 11 that he thought I hung up on him. I hadn't, but I thought he hung up on me, so we were both mad at each other for something neither of us did. Ended up good, but I was crying by the end of the night. Too many emotions.
Alissa, lol...isn't it funny how upset we get at things that we'd normally laugh at?! I bet our DHs are thinking we're freaking nuts. lol I'm a pretty easy going person but lately I've become a massive drama queen!
I will definitely call my OB if the pain continues or gets worse. Hopefully there's something I can do. I'm even willing to try acupuncture!
Jessica, it sounds like you guys were both upset over a misunderstanding. Sorry you both had bad days but yay for having a happy ending! lol Your DH sounds really sweet.
AFM, I've been slowly emptying out the closets in the nursery and I just don't know where I'm supposed to put all this stuff! I'm donating bunch of clothes because I just simply don't have the room. This sucks! lol
What is everyone doing for dinner tonight? We're having leftover chicken and dumplings. Yum!
